This Soil and Bark Calculator helps you to estimate how many cubic yards you would need to order to cover a specific area to a particular depth. Enter the width, length, and thickness of your area to be covered, click on whether you are measuring the thickness in feet or inches, then click on the Calculate button. The calculator will estimate the number of cubic yards of soil or bark that will be required.
Odd Shaped Area? You could revert to your high school geometry, or you can try this:
- Make a rough drawing of your area.
- Divide that area into sections. Choose a dividing line that will create something close to a rectangle. Close is good enough.
- Use the calculator above to determine the cubic yards required for each section, and then just add them together.
